About The Millionaire on Heels Blog

The Millionaire on Heels blog is intended to fill a niche in between the "scrimping and saving" frugal-type blogs and the testosterone-fuelled "quadruple your earnings in a day"-type share tipping forums.  It's for the professionals out there who earn a good income, but need to present well without spending all their earnings on snazzy suits and Italian shoes.  It's for those singletons who work long hours and have difficulty finding the time and energy to meal plan for one when takeaway (or toast) will suffice.  It has a female focus, seeing as how I am female, but of course everyone is welcome. 

More specifically, the purpose of this blog is fivefold:
  • To test the hypothesis that it is possible to become a millionaire in less than 10 years
  • To do so without undue risk taking or illegal or immoral activities
  • To do so while maintaining a lifestyle in line with my core values
  • To share the saving and investing advice I learn throughout my journey
  • To entertain along the way with some examples of my own trials and tribulations
Each month or so I work my way through a saving or investing-related topic of interest, interspersed with real-life commentary on my progress.

About Me, The Millionaire on Heels

Myself, I am a forty-something long-time Sydneysider.  I spent 12 years working as a management consultant, jetsetting around the country and the world serving a raft of different clients.  One had to keep up a certain image ...  Last year I was headhunted for an operational role and took the plunge and relocated to the suburbs. 

This career change has provided the impetus for me to rethink my values and goals in life.  I realised that I was stagnating a bit from a financial perspective.  I had a big house, a nice car, etc., but with a pile of debt to match.  My net worth was growing over time, but not fast enough for my liking.  With my income, I reckoned I had the capacity to become a millionaire in a short space of time.  Most financial sources define a millionaire as having a million dollars of investable assets outside the family home.  And a lot of my net worth is taken up by my home itself.  So I've got some way to go to becoming a true millionaire.  Therefore, I've set a target of becoming a millionaire by 2020.
